I don't think that anyone reading this thought for one moment that they or a loved one would someday be reading this and actually responding to these threads re Heart Disease!? 
 
I sure didn't!
 
How about You? 
 
What thoughts or questions did you have re Heart Disease that made you decide to go on line with your computer and then here to HealingWell's Cardiovascular Forum?  confused

2 years ago to find support with like  minded people to help me out and offer support for my husband and sons were in denial.

I'm here because my heart disease is a state secret :P , at least locally. This is because I'm in business for myself and it would be like shooting myself in the foot if people knew about it. My close friends and of course family know about it, but it's really not talked about too much at all, and not wanting to upset anybody, if asked I usually say I'm fine - unless I have the flu, then I can whine all I want lol!
I once went to a women's heart support group locally, but it was a really strange experience. I felt like I had nothing in common with them yeah ROFL and it so happened that there were 6 cardio nurses in attendance, which was a little unsettling skull , but then the person who was heading the group happened to be a cardio nurse, so that somewhat explained it, but still....
In any case, I was very uncomfortable sharing in person, which is interesting because I never feel that way online. I feel that I can talk honestly here to people who understand, and learn from our shared experiences, give and receive support, and without the emotional baggage that there is when talking to family and close friends - and none of them have heart disease, and all of us do... I probably wouldn't talk to anyone about it if I didn't talk to you guys!

You are not alone, Oona!!  I think a lot of us find ourselves here, as it is much easier to share and ask questions where we feel safer.  I'm glad you are here!!
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

Heidi, I'm sure I would have loved your group! I wish I had been a member! But we are too darned far away anyway...When I say I had nothing in common with them, that was DENIAL, lol!
I love our group here and I thank you Teri and Heidi and the temporarily missing Kathlyn and everyone else here for making this possible.
hugs to all,
Oona
